Man arrested locally in state child porn sweep

MILLEDGEVILLE — A three-month investigation led to a sweep of Georgia counties last week and the arrest of a Milledgeville man in connection to the distribution of child pornography over the Internet. 

Warrants were issued in 37 counties statewide following the investigation, which was headed by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, GBI spokesman John Bankhead said in a press release. 

“Operation Guarding Innocence” ran from January through March as the largest operation of its kind in Georgia. The operation included 50 teams, representing 47 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, including the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office.

Among those arrested was a Baldwin County man, known by the singular name Supriadi. He is being held on one count of suspicion of child pornography, according to local authorities. 

“We served two search warrants and one arrest was made in reference to the same case of possession of child pornography,” said Cpt. Brad King of the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office.

“Forensics is still working on the contents of his computer,” said King. “Based on what we find, there could be additional charges.”

Statewide, ninety-eight suspects have been identified and charged in connection distributing child porn over the Internet, according to the GBI press release. 

The ICAC Task Force Program was developed in response to the increasing number of children and teenagers making use of the Internet along with the increased activity of online predators. It will continue in its efforts to partner with state and local law enforcement to help protect children online and hold offenders accountable for their crimes.
